I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The culture is pretty awesome and has staying power. The intern program is amazing and everyone is actually happy that the interns are there.

Cons

Sometimes things can get "hacky" because the company is so small and everyone has so much on their plate, i.e. working code speaks louder than words/design. As a fulltime employee you will ocasionally have to put in merciless overtime.

    I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, intellectual, fun, passionate people who make it exciting to come to work every day. The energy is dynamic. The food is incredible. The work is powerful.

    Cons

    Tenured people are leaving and it means we're changing a little bit. It's not a bad thing necessarily just makes me sad to see them go.

    It is hiring a bit too fast

    Advice to Management

    Keep the hiring bar high
